The Tour de France moves into Castelnau-Magnoac with the sprinters eyeing up glory in Stage 19 with just two fourth-category climbs to contend with.
The race finishes in Cahors, which is a nice omen for Jonas Vingegaard, as the Danish royal family own the castle of Cayx in this town. The Jumbo Visma star broke Tadej Pogacar during Stage 18 and has all but wrapped up the battle for the Yellow Jersey after a sensational Tour.
The potential for crosswinds could boost hopes for those ready to bide their time and strike late.
Jasper Philipsen is the favourite here, but who can count out the incredible Wout van Aert, with Fabio Jakobsen and Caleb Ewan are also in the running.
